GIna K Design October Release Inspiration Hop, Day 2!!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome back to our 2nd day for this month's release of some wonderful inspiration for you! Up today we have the oh so awesome StampTV kit, Wishing You Joy! And it is just LOADED with goodies...besides the awesome stamps...you have ribbons and designer papers...Gina has a video on Stamp TV showing you all of the gorgeousness in this kit!! I wasn't able to attend the release party, and I had my GF Lee show this card I had made with the kit that night:


I did a bit of paper piecing on the trees and some sponging. The little acrylic charm says 'Happy Holidays' on it, you can't hardly see it in the pic though, so sorry! This card came together super quick, love that! I have a project I am working on, but didn't get done with it in time this weekend...life got in the way! But I do hope to have this project done over so I can show it in the next day or two!

Ok, ready for more awesome inspiration?? Here ya go! Be sure to leave comments along the way for more chances to win a fabulous Gina K. Designs grab bag filled with a least a dozen individual precut images! ....the more you comment, the more you increase your chances! :D
